Last call for charity photo competition

It's not too late to enter medical charity photography competition Capture a Moment for Cobalt.

The competition closes on Tuesday (31st August).

Cobalt launched the photography competition to raise funds to support teenagers and young adults with cancer, by providing a specialist nurse.

Local professional photographer Sally Ryde is part of the judging panel who will oversee the entries.

Judging takes place on 10th September and the charity has already received over 300 entries.

Twelve winners will be published in the Cobalt 2022 calendar and win prizes including a Canon EOS 2000D with lens, a Light & Land photography workshop, subscriptions to the Royal Photographic Society and to Amateur Photography magazine and a tour of Steve Russell Studios in Stroud.

Donations to enter the competition are £2 and there are three categories to choose from, along with an under 16s entry. Categories are Caring and Sharing, Nature in all its forms and Happiness is...

The competition is open to both amateur and professional photographers. Details of how to enter are available here. 

Kirsty Bradbury, fundraising engagement officer for Cobalt said: "We're extremely excited about the photography competition. It is open to everyone and you can enter as many images as you like. Smartphone entries are welcome too for a chance to win some of our amazing prizes. The money raised will be used to fund Cobalt's teenage and young adult cancer nurse, who supports some of the most vulnerable in our society - 16 - 25 year olds who have been given a life threatening diagnosis. Cobalt needs to raise £28,000 each year to ensure that the vital support they receive will continue."
